Traffic was disrupted for around four hours after the high-intensity blast on Aurangzeb Road.
Commuters in the area were confused after traffic on Aurangzeb Road - between Race Course Metro station and Safdarjung Road crossing - was restricted and diverted.
"I was driving my car towards Chanakyapuri and had planned to use Aurangzeb Road to get there. But as soon as I reached near Tughlaq Road-Aurangzeb Road roundabout, I saw traffic personnel diverting traffic towards both sides of the Tughlaq Road," said Rohit Kumar, a BPO employee.
Since the blast occurred on a working day, elaborate traffic arrangement was put in place for managing the traffic.
More than 50 traffic police personnel along with staff from the local police station were deployed in the area. The route, where the blast occurred, was opened for traffic only after forensic teams collected evidence from the spot and blast-affected vehicles were towed away.
